These little critters can be very frightening, some people even tend to seek “higher ground” when they see a mouse in the house. Mice can cause house fires by chewing electrical wires, they create horrible odors and they can spread numerous diseases. We handle mouse removal and control problems throughout Central Virginia, particularly the Richmond and Charlottesville areas, on a regular basis. Mouse baiting programs are ideal for most people, but we also offer trapping removal services to help get rid of your mouse problem. Did you know that mice can enter an opening as small as a dime? In most cases we can mouse-proof your home or business to help keep mice out. Without proper mouse proofing, you can expect your mouse problem to continue to grow. That’s why exclusion is such an important part of any rodent management service. Mice populations left unchecked can get out of hand very quickly and mice spread many diseases.
Rats are highly intelligent animals. There are actually hierarchies of individual rats in the colony, where the older, more experienced rats will use the younger ones as “test subjects.” For example, if there is a block of poison sitting out and the older rat sees the younger one die, the older rat is smart enough to know not to consume it. Let us develop a rat removal and control plan tailored to your specific problem. Rats problems are best remediated by experts who understand rat behavior & biology. Did you know that we have two major rat species in Virginia – Norway rats and Roof rats. Did you know that rats can enter a home through an opening about the size of a quarter? Rat problems are often addressed using trapping, rodenticides and Integrated Pest Management programs. Let us come up with a plan that’s right for you.
Spiders cause a couple different kinds of annoyances for Virginia homeowners, including spiders in the house and accumulating cobwebs around the outside of the home. VPWRS handles spider control in Virginia with interior & exterior treatment services, depending on the type of spider issue.
There are many species of ants that will cause nuisance problems including fire ants, carpenter ants, black ants, and a few others. Ant control programs are executed by using pesticide treatment. The colonies are usually eradicated within a few days, but we also offer long-term programs.
Moths can become an issue for some people when there are multiple moths congregating on various sections of the home, including patios, open sunrooms, around outside lighting, windows, & sometimes inside the house as well. Moth control is easy with VPWRS!
Crickets are known for the loud “chirping” sounds they will make, which is scientifically known as “stridulating.” Unknown to many, crickets do not make this sound with their mouths, but rather with their wings. The upper and lower wing rub together, creating the infamous sound used by the entertainment world to describe an awkward moment of silence. In nature the sound can be peaceful, but some people simply want them gone.
Have you ever lifted an old rotten piece of wood only to discover the emergence of several hundred earwigs? If you haven’t, consider yourself lucky. Earwigs are also known to be household pests. If you’ve discovered even one earwig, it can often signify a larger issue at hand.
Fleas can be very irritating for your furry friends, so make sure they aren’t lingering around your house ready to pounce on your pet and call VPWRS. Our flea control programs are guaranteed, and you can feel safe knowing you are working with qualified professionals.
The common house fly is a pest known to cause extremely annoying circumstances, such as flies landing on your food. Although the rumor of “a fly poops on your every time it lands” is not true, do not eat any food they land on. A fly will regurgitate enzymes onto your food to dissolve it because they cannot chew, and then they slurp it up. In other words flies throw-up on your food. Nasty. Flies must go. Call VPWRS!
A study that asked what pest would most incline people to ban a restaurant faster; flies, cockroaches, rodents, or ants? 80% of the participants answered cockroaches. They are truly revolting to think about in a restaurant, let alone in your home. Call VPWRS for cockroach control service.
With their long spindly legs, Centipedes can also be found as household pests, although they are generally outside. Centipedes are attracted to damp conditions such as under tree bark, rotting leaves, under stones, boards, or mulch beds. When they are around your foundation, that’s when they can enter your home. This most commonly happens because people have mulch beds.
Millipedes are often mistaken for centipedes. Millipedes are generally more common and are the ones that look like a little black worm in a shell. Millipedes are also attracted to damp conditions, such as underneath mulch beds. From there, they make their entry through foundations and into the home.
The dreaded Zika Virus is the disease that can be caused by getting bit by a mosquito infected with the virus. A source from the Virginia Department of Health said there were 112 “potential cases” of Zika virus around Virginia in 2016. Don’t let mosquitos cause you fret; call VPWRS for mosquito control services in Virginia.
Silverfish can reproduce very quickly. They are attracted to many things such as paper and glue because they feed on cellulose. Silverfish control is done by offering treatment of the property. Silverfish are often discovered by homeowners when they are spotted in bathrooms and kitchens. Silverfish are also capable of living in several different environments, but prefer dark and damp areas.
Ticks are another potential pest that can spread disease to your pets. Deer ticks will commonly feed on the blood of deer and other mammals, picking up the lime disease virus which will be transmitted to your pet and other animals when an infected tick feeds on their blood.
Baled faced hornets are among the most aggressive insects. Hornets will often construct their nests around soffit and eve areas on a home. If the nest is encapsulated with the gray paper-ish looking wrap, it will either be hornets or another type of bee/wasp that can pack a real punch in their sting. Hornet stings are much more potent than other wasps because their venom contains 5% acetylcholine.
Wasps come in a variety of species, with yellow jackets and paper wasps included among them. Controlling wasps is done by treating the nest, or hive, with insecticides that will euthanize the bug. Once treated, the wasps may be dead within a few minutes or a few days depending on the type of chemical used for the application.
Yellow Jacket Control:
Yellow Jackets are very common to have around a property, and they can be either in nests up high or they can also have ground nests that people will commonly step on by mistake. Although nothing compared to the hornet, the sting of a yellow jacket is also highly painful.
